2. Meanwhile, make our Mango Ginger Vinaigrette

3. Heat a gas grill on high for 10 minutes.

4. Turn one burner to low and leave the other on high for radiant heat.

5. Place the filet skin-side down over the low heat burner. Close lid and cook for about 7-10 minutes. When the salmon begins to bubble through to the top, flip filet over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Salmon should be flakey but not dry.

6. While the salmon is cooking, shred the cabbage and divide on 4 plates.

7. To serve, cut filet into four pieces and remove the skin. Place each piece of salmon on top of the shredded cabbage and spoon about ยผ cup of vinaigrette over each.
